Description: Prashad is an award winning Indian vegetarian restaurant in the heart of West Yorkshire. It is based in a renovated pub building in Drighlington, which has been transformed into an intimate and vibrant Gujarati eaterie. It features a large bar area where the in-house mixologist serves up perfectly-matched cocktails, locally-brewed beers and wines with roadside snacks and Indian tapas. There are three different dining areas and a snug that can be individually booked for private parties. The open pass kitchen brings the passionate Head Chef and her team closer to the customers. In the last 12 months alone we have been awarded the Morrisons Magazine Great Grub Award 2013, the Yorkshire Life Chef of the Year 2013 (which Minal and Kaushy won jointly), the Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand 2014, and the Yorkshire Evening Post Oliver Awards Best Indian Restaurant 2014!

As always, the food and service were excellent. We tried the 'taster' starter platter for the first time - everything on it was delicious. I followed this with my favourite masala dhosa and the other two members of the party had the chick peas and naan bread. Everything tasted fresh and delicious.

Just thinking about Prashad's food makes my tastebuds tingle and my mouth water. For a true taste of India, without the oil and fake "english-ised" curry powders, visit Prashad!! It means HOLY FOOD. And that it is.

Our third trip to Prashad and as usual it didn't disappoint. We ordered a bit less this time as portions are a good size and last time we felt guilty leaving some, we still didn't manage the dessert though! Service was good and the food hot, fresh, tasty and delicious. There is always so much choice and the flavours are... More

We were staying not far from Prashad and stumbled on the restaurant looking for some vegetarian option. What a pleasant and delicious surprise. We stopped in and looked at the menu and the manager suggested that we book a table if we were interested, which we did. The restaurant was chocked full and I see why. I like Indian food... More

We have just had a great evening at Prashad. The service could not be bettered. The food is of the top quality. From the pickle tray and poppadoms to the freshly cooked naan it is obvious that great care has been put into the combination of flavours and authenticity of all the dishes. So, no complaints whatsoever about what we... More

The service was friendly without being intrusive, the table was lovely, and our party chose to have a set meal for eight. This meant we could chat instead of study a menu while we enjoyed our drinks, cocktails were delicious.Poppodoms and chutneys were supplied and were as light and fresh as possible. The starters were outstanding and presented so attractively... More

A convenient setting, great access and parking. A very welcoming team of staff and excellent choice of quality cocktails and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). Nice to see Ilkley brewery real ale too. The food was sublime. We had been to the Bradford restaurant before they moved and this is every bit as good, closer to us and (probably) a safer... More

Food was excellent. The Special Chaat starter was sensational, wonderful flavours and texture. Desserts of Kulfi and Shrikand were delicious. Staff were smart and attentive.

Whilst the title says this is the third time at Prashad, it's actually our first visit to the new Drighlington restaurant. We booked ahead and four of us went on a Friday night. The food is excellent and has completely different flavours to "conventional" Indian restaurants. There is still a little heat in some dishes but that's fine with us... More
